The system of writing Japanese using Chinese characters.
''Japanese is written in a mixture of kanji and kana.''
These variations cannot be said to be extraordinary in their appearance; Inoue, Sugishima, Ukita, Minagawa, and Kashu (1994) report that variation is common even among high frequency words for which kanji is the typical representation. https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=eTk6AAAAQBAJ&pg=PA99&dq=%22kanji+is+the+typical+representation%22
Kana is a syllabic script, and kanji is a logographic or ideographic script. https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=Ip5cAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA226&dq=%22kanji%22
Any individual Chinese character as used in the Japanese language.
